    Well put by bepe: “I am left feeling like I’m in a performance art piece or a psychology study or something. … How can it be that increased moderation is the continual goal, as site activity dwindles? It’s like being in an anarchist version of waiting for godot.”

    Calculator for the costs of newsletter/membership platforms.
